5 Reasons I’m Still (Somewhat) Sane With A Newborn

5 Reasons I’m Still (Somewhat) Sane With A Newborn

An update, if you will.       My husband. Goodness gracious, I knew I chose the right man for me, but there’s nothing like throwing a screaming, unable-to-communicate, unable-to-control-bodily-functions human into the mix to test the waters. Result: he’s awesome at this. We’re both on a learning curve here — I was the youngest, he’s … Continue reading

BabyG’s Arrival: Defying Expectations, Part One

Preface. These are the 3 things I was repeatedly told whilst pregnant, especially in the latter days. 1. First babies usually arrive late. After all, due dates are nonsense, and your body hasn’t done this before.

They’re not my favorite, personally, seeing as how 15 minutes outside turns one from a human being into a creature from the swamp. Swampish and sneezing should be the temporary name of my … Continue reading

7QT: life is changing yet again Edition.

And yet seeing as how I don’t have to work on Fridays, perhaps I’ll actually do all the things that usually wait for the weekend. Time shall tell, eh? Do you like to … Continue reading

#KitchenExperiments: Creamy Spinach Sausage Pasta

Tonight I went YOLO with dinner. Here was my thought process: Husband wants dinner. Has no preferences. There’s some stuff in the fridge I should probably use up. (Namely: 2 chicken sausage links and half a block of cream cheese) Let’s combine those and call it dinner. Now, I should say I’ve seen variations of … Continue reading
